2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Read Day of Battle yet? I thought Army at Dawn was top-notch. Shouldn't Kenny Williams be looking to add something to his starting pitching depth? I know the pickings are slim, and I hold out hope for Danks being useful at the end of the rotation, but I'm not drinking the Gavin Floyd kool-aid.
(ChuckR from Addison, IL)
Yeah, I knocked off Atkinson's latest a few months back. Good stuff, an Atkinson did a good job of treating the mystery of Mark Clark in sufficient depth.

Like you, I think the rotation isn't there to play a plausible dark horse. It's possible that Floyd or Danks deliver, but I just have a hard time believing that all of them will, on top of a comeback by Jose Contreras... it isn't like the Indians and Tigers have anything like the same obvious weaknesses.
